From the Preface by A. von Hippel:


Since Debye postulated the existence of permanent dipole moments, this molecular constant has become of decisive importance for the interpretation of the dielectric properties of gases, liquids, and solids. More than twenty-five hundred compounds have been measured to date, many under a variety of conditions and by a number of different methods. These substances were selected according to the diverse interests of the investigators, and the results are scattered in the physical and chemical literature of many countries.
